Black Phoebe

Black Phoebe
Roseville, California, USA
Member of the Flycatcher Family
§An Outfield of Flycatchers§

~true bird fact~  Males of the species will select a variety of nesting sites and show them to his paired female by hovering over them momentarily, one by one. She chooses the site and builds the nest, a bowl-shaped affair made of mud.

Spends a lot of time gazing wistfully out over water
Makes decisions that seem rash or sudden to friends, but he has thought it all through ahead of time
Has a poet's heart, but never writes anything down
